In a nod to automotive history and the golden age of drag racing, Mattel Creations is set to release an exclusive collector’s edition: the Matchbox 1962 Plymouth Savoy. With a vibrant neon Spectraflame anti-freeze color scheme, this 1:64 scale model pays homage to the iconic mid-size sedan that once dominated both suburban driveways and drag strips across the nation.
Back in 1962, Plymouth made waves with the redesign of their mid-size sedan, the Savoy. Boasting a full unibody construction and a lighter curb weight, it was equipped with a groundbreaking 6.8-liter (413 cubic-inch) “MAX WEDGE” V8 engine. This powerhouse not only catered to family comfort but also set the benchmark for drag racing excellence.
Fast forward to the present day, and the Matchbox 1962 Plymouth Savoy encapsulates the essence of this legendary car. Adorned with authentic racing logos and meticulous attention to detail, this miniature marvel captures the era’s spirit when drag racing was at its peak.
The Spectraflame anti-freeze body color is a visual feast for enthusiasts, complemented by the ZAMAC body type and True Grip Fenton Wheel-Street tires that reflect the era’s racing aesthetics. The silver chassis, light smoke-tinted windows, and black interior add to its allure, inviting collectors and automotive aficionados alike to admire its precision craftsmanship.
For collectors, the packaging is as impressive as the model itself. Encased in an acrylic case with an ornate outer box, this limited-edition offering from Mattel Creations is more than just a collectible; it’s a homage to a bygone era of automotive greatness.
The exclusivity of this release adds to its allure. Scheduled for availability starting on November 16, 2023, at 9 AM PDT, enthusiasts worldwide will have the opportunity to secure this prized possession. Priced at $25.00 plus shipping and processing, the Matchbox 1962 Plymouth Savoy promises a nostalgic journey for those eager to own a piece of drag racing history.
